The first interclub match of the season for Letchworth Garden City Angling Association was held on the river Ouse at Felmersham, with the guest coming from Leighton Buzzard.
Little rain had fallen over the last few weeks which allowed the river to flow, slow and clear. Vegetation growth in the river was still high which put a few pegs out of action but a nice sunny day made for a pleasant day out.

Quite a few anglers had their plans taken apart as changes in tactics and bait were made often to find the quarry. Roach and large Perch were the target for many but most had to be content with small silvers in the net. The big surprise for some was the absence of Bleak in some pegs.

Peg 19 held the fish for Steve Mayes, which helped him to first place. Using various tactics during the match, Steve had two Perch for approx 2lb 4oz each as part of his haul for a total weight of 8lb 11oz.

Shefford angler Kev Farrow worked out where the fish were on bridge peg 1. His haul of silvers came in at 7lb 4oz to take second place. Kev used various tactics to find the fish.

Third place went to Clive Robinson from Stevenage who also had to change tactics frequently during the match. Clive landed 4lb 10oz of mixed silvers from peg 3.

Leighton Buzzard will hold a return match against LGCAA on 25th Oct 2015, which will be held on the river Ouzel
